More than impresssed....
Pure perfection. What an amazing property!! I instantly felt at home. Loved the design and architecture of the place...everywhere you look there is something to draw you in. I’ll definitely be rebooking whenever I stay in London from now on. Very friendly and service minded team at Bloomsbury Estates.

Unique Space for a Group!
The Museum Penthouse was the perfect spot for our visit to London. Excellent location for walking the city and close to multiple tube lines. The space is exactly as shown in the pictures and was great for our group. It was unique, quirky, and functional. Thomas was extremely responsive and accommodating before and during our visit. The only thing to be aware of is that Great Portland Street is a busy street and some of the bedrooms are a bit loud with street noise. This was easily solved by using a white noise app but if you're a light sleeper then just be mindful of the bedroom you choose. Overall, we had an excellent stay and will definitely look to book this space again during our next visit!

This place is amazing! The pictures and description do not do it justice. We were the first ones to book this place through Expedia (they just recently listed it on the website). The place is laid out so the light beans in and the opening. The widows on each of the floors brings in an awesome breeze. The management company had a chilled bottle of Preseco waiting for us on arrival that added a special touch. It's close to transportation and family/kid friendly. I highly recommend this place.
